Cosmetic dental bonding is used to repair chipped or cracked teeth or gaps between teeth. It can also be used to cover exposed sensitive root surfaces. All these repairs can be made in one easy appointment at A Caring Place Dentistry, and you may not even need to get numb.
Dental bonding is performed by etching the tooth to create microscopic crevices in the surface of your natural tooth which ensures that the bonding material will adhere properly to the tooth surface. Then resin is applied to the surface of your tooth, acting like a super glue to hold the composite in place. Next the tooth colored composite is placed in layers as a putty-like compound, and cured using a special light. Finally, our dentist will buff and polish the bonded tooth to insure a natural looking result.
